I must be getting old...

4-5 months ago I bought this set of Lincolns off eBay for $42 hoping the 1955 DOUB slot had an actual '55 DDO. Slim odds, sure, but hey, worth a shot.

Get the set in hand, and the '55 DDO is just a poor mans DDO, so I toss it into my closet and forget about it.

I'm liquidating a lot of my random chaff right now, so I'm cleaning out my closet today, pull it out, stare at it for a minute trying to figure out what to do with it. I settle on just giving it to a local dealer to do whatever he wants with, when the bottom left corner catches my eye.

"1972 DOUB" Wait, what? I didn't check for that.

Yes, there was a coin there...

Sure enough, it's a 72 DDO.

And that's the story of how I almost gave away a '72 DDO for nothing. Somebody put me out to pasture please.
